ATF Fluid Change for Cayenne 958.1 Turbo


I am looking to do a transmission fluid change on my '12 Cayenne Turbo.  If I do this DIY what fluids are compatible other than the expensive OEM fluid which I presume is a rebranded supplier fluid. If I were to have a shop do it for me whom is a reputable shop in the DFW area other than a dealer.



transmission shift handle recall NHSTA 19V-446

I received a recall notice in the mail regarding the transmission shift handle, and a few days later,

I visited my local Porsche dealership to arrange an appointment to have the recall work completed.

Two weeks later, when I arrived at the dealership for my appointment I was advised that "Porsche

has not released the item to complete the recall with".

Does anyone have any idea when the dealerships will receive the parts necessary to effect the

required recall ??


Transfer case malfunction

I have a  2011 Cayenne S and had to replace the transverse case at 107,000 miles. That lasted 24,000 miles and it was replace at Porsche's expense. It now has to be replaced 30,000 miles later. (Porsche will not pick up the tab). Is this an on going problem in the Cayennes and Macans?

I have been looking for 2005-6 cayenne turbo. At least 2 I have inquired about have had or have a vibration in front when accelerating. Dealers say it is probable shaft, diff or transfer case. Expensive I am guessing. Is this a somewhat common problem with 2005-6 Cayenne Turbos? What would cause this to occur and has Porsche addressed it?Thanks

when driving aggressively, occaisionally I get a loud clunk in the transmission when it shifts from 3rd to 4th. I have not been able to get this to recreate for the dealer, and there are no fault codes. its a daily driver, and this happens 1 per month, but only when I'm pushing it
